GTX 570 vs HD 7850

Hey guys, I am building a gaming pc for Battlefield 3, Skyrim, and Crysis 2. (And more) I will be playing on a single 23'' 1920 x 1080p Monitor. I am debating on the GPU, so far I have GTX 570 and 7850. Which is better? The difference between them is only $10, so money is not an issue. This is my first build, so I am new to overclocking and stuff. Which card will give better performance and last longer and is just a better card in general? Thanks!

  1. BF3 wise, the 570, though if you ever planned on going for a sli/crossfire setup in the future, a 570 sli will probably hurt in the long run if you buy the 1280mb vram 570, as well as being last generation, will get phased out of retail stores faster than the 7850.

    Thanks! But relying purely on stock performance, which will give me smoother gaming? Thanks!

    overall i would go for the 570. the 1.5Gbs of vram is inconsequential with a single monitor.






  4. WOW! Thanks for the quick and detailed answer. I'm going to order the 570! Thanks again!
